The New Moon in Gemini has aspects to Saturn, Neptune, Mercury and Venus. It’s an air moon, ruler is Mercury, which is conjunct Venus in Gemini. What’s Gemini communication, ideas, choices and information add desire, attraction or longing thrown in (Venus).
Sun/Moon trine Saturn Rx in Aquarius, any new information, news, messages or ideas are grounded and practical, are clear, sure and straightforward. But the Venus/Mercury square to Neptune, makes it foggy. Neptune can draw you in, you may even get lost in an idea or thought or attraction. Don’t lose sight of what is real, what is sure, stick to a rule or structure, go back to Saturn, stay grounded, be practical and mature.
Trying to pin things into place at the New Moon will be slippery. There will be points of clarity or signs along the way which will let you know what direction to go or choice to make. I guess stay open and flexible, ask questions if any confusion or doubt arises. Be discerning as much as you can and think about all the information that you have on hand until it all becomes clear.
As always know where this full moon is happening in Your birth chart for a deeper understanding about what’s happening for you.
Libra Moon shows you through others (external) where you feel powerless and how to bring that back to balance.
Full Moon in air sign Libra, communication, conversation and information, will be important to the future path ahead. Moon in Libra and Sun in Aries, the axes of me and others, it’s what’s outside of you, others maybe showing you the way, it’s all about the external, what’s facing you or opposing you at this time. What you do is yours, how you react or respond is yours, what you think and feel is yours, whatever they or others are doing is not yours, it’s very important to concentrate on what you’re doing and feeling. Come back to center, concentrate here when making decisions or taking action.
Libra is balance, compromise, cooperation and projection. It’s talking about all of your relationships and partnerships to all things in your life, not just people.
A lot of stuff and information is in the air, work out what works or sits with you, a lot of triggering going on as well, again, work out what’s yours and what’s not, get very clear on this.
Aspects to the Moon – a quincunx to Neptune in Pisces, adjustments may be needed, confusion or uncertainty, weighing up the information may not be easy. Go with what you feel, rely on your intuition for clarity.
Squares Pluto (transformation) and Jupiter (expansion) in Capricorn, it’s constantly changing, as we all move through this extraordinary time, it’s difficult to get a good grip and stay grounded. Moon is seeking balance, to center, find ways to get, to be and do the balance in your life.
Mars in Aquarius square to Uranus in Taurus, bringing in a push or action taken from information. As with all Uranus things it can lead to breakthroughs or breakdowns, can be a surprise or sudden. Either way can lead to freedom in an area of life.
There’s aspects supporting this Full Moon to Saturn and Mars helping us to find a new vision, to think about your future, for some it’s showing you a new way or thinking about a new way of being. Chiron (our wounds or sore spot) is helping us to be proactive, which helps to ease some of the struggles and pain instead of just sitting in it.
As always go look at your own birth chart to see how all of this is impacting you.
As I write, the moon is slowing moving towards the Sun, the balsamic phrase, you let go, a dying off, for the New Moon in Gemini, I gotta say it’s uneasy, uncomfortable, some angst and stress is moving along with it.
Gemini, sign of ideas, thoughts, communication, learning and sharing. An air sign full of bright ideas. This New Moon not so much with the mind or clarity as there is too much other stuff going on. You may have to wait till after the Sun and Moon meet up and move apart to set your intention. Perhaps not an easy New Moon, one to sit and wait it out, feel it, go with it, do not try to force anything, it’s a time just to allow, there is a reason for it, maybe you do not know right now, but you will.
Moon squares Neptune, fogs it all up, feels like you cannot grasp hold of the idea, thought is scattered, thinking is clouded.
Mercury ruler of Gemini moves into Cancer a few hours before this New Moon, brings in feelings, moves you into your body, out of the head adds a touch more heat and emotion.
Venus, after the New Moon leaves Cancer and enters Leo, the personal planets shift and change which makes it all wobbly.
A t-square is forming between Saturn in Capricorn + Mercury in Cancer + Chiron in Aries, it’s tense, hits a sore spot or you feel extra sensitive to all that is around you. It’s a struggle, you feel pushed down or in, stay in the moment, feel it, try to observe it all, (Gemini) Chiron in Aries, you want to get going, take action, here you feel vulnerable, feel like the fire is out. Stay on track, know you have got it in you to proceed onwards.
These three are all meeting together, so something is happening however difficult it is hang in there. You have to work with Mercury’s intuitive perspective with Saturn’s rules/structure and organization and Chiron, well, wants you to use your pain or sore spot to be the fire that sets you free and keeps you moving. The intensity they bring may be the gift, if you work with it. Whats missing from the mix is Libra’s balance and logic, find a center point, a conduit to channel all of this energy. Not just a mind New Moon, its body and emotions.
Pluto quincunx(adjustment) Sun and Moon in Gemini(ideas, information, truth) energy that just don’t fit well together, another layer of intense emotions sitting just underneath the surface, anything to do with Pluto is an unraveling, what is Pluto’s role, to make you eventually feel empowered, you know like you got some, removes whatever is making you feel powerless.
Moon enters Cancer @ 5:19 pm, you may want to find yourself some comfort, let your emotions settle, but know deep inside that something is changing, shifting and turning.
As always look at YOUR birth chart to see how this is working for you or if it affects you at all.

Life can be so frustrating, annoying, messy and a struggle, finding your way along, trying to find some peace from the outside world in which you live and interact. People poke and situations are all around you and you have to participate in it all, whether you want to or not, but how you want to do that is all up to you, under this Libra Full Moon you have the chance to think about this.
Libra finding some balance or finding your centre, getting back to a middle space or ground, you are getting a little help from Saturn and Mars with this Full Moon,even if it doesn’t feel like it. Saturn blocks or limits and Mars is the action, taking or even thinking of taking. It’s holding you back from going to far ahead or rushing ahead, it’s the slow, steady approach that is going to work best. And, it will bring about some annoyance or frustration for sure.
This Moon is calling for balance, for you to make a decision, about how you are going to proceed forward. It’s talking about the biggies in your life. Libra is ruled by Venus, love, money, values, self-respect and relationship, the other people, this is the theme that will be playing out and something will be illuminated for you to see, it’s showing you something about you, others may be showing or projecting onto you what is inside of you. Saturn is involved, a little testing could be part of this Moon, if you do feel tested, have to face something that the Moon brings up, that something needs to be worked on or looked at, as it’s part of the area of life that needs addressing or getting clarity on.
Sun in Aries, that’s the me, part, identity, individuality, your passion, goals, confidence and courage to be who you are really are, what you are here to do, be. You do need to pull back at times to see yourself clearly, to take you back to the centre of your being, get centred and push-off from that point.
Saturn is excellent at putting on the breaks for you to slow down, Saturn is also excellent at putting roadblocks in your way to make you slow down and even stop if you are getting lost, out of line or just being to eager to run forward. Take whatever is slowing you down as a blessing at this point.
Venus who rules this Moon did meet up with Uranus, new, exciting, in the Venus themes, it may have sparked you up, rattled you for more to come. But now you feel frustrated because you tried to get out of the comfort zone, or (thought that you should get out) which is a good thing and you will, but not quite yet. Or not in the way you thought you should. Saturn says.
Sun conjunct Mercury Rx you have a few things to go over again in your head, about Aries/Mars things, keep it real about who you are and what you want. Re-access – process, before moving forward.
There again it’s going slow and finding your centre spot, breathe into this and find some stillness and peace, stick with the truth of where you are going and who you really are in regards to others and you. It’s time to get real about this.
Sun/Moon trine, North and South Node, past and future, moving from past to future requires you do the work, except the limits or blockages that are in front of you, and pay attention to what you are seeing, hearing and feeling.
Venus does enter Taurus before this Full Moon…..Phew! she says to getting out of Aries and into her home sign of Taurus, she does rule Libra too, Venus themes are strong. Here again it’s the steady and slow approach, she’s building, steady, secure and stability are key to future growth in areas of love, money, self-worth.
At the end of the day it’s all about how YOU feel about yourself, you are given the opportunity to look and see how that is going. It’s hard, frustrating and difficult and you will be pissed off, there is no doubt about that.
Saturn says “Hang in there don’t give yourself to much of a hard time, just go slow and steady and do the bloody work”
NEW MOON + ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS!
Conjunct Mercury, sextile Uranus, square Jupiter.
A new moon, conjunct south node is looking back at the past in order to move into the future, but look at it from a new perspective. Perhaps take something of the old with you, but do it differently this time round?
Keep in mind that the nodes of fate/destiny bring in the universe’s way of getting life back on track. Some of this is always out of your control.
You may feel like you are working out what is the new? but so much of the past (people, beliefs, attitude, life in general) is still happening, view the past, what have you learned from all of it, know that you are different, are more than capable of turning all of the old ways of doing and being into a new way of doing and being. It’s may be a cross over feeling.
Mercury is involved so a lot of talking, thinking, ideas, insight, information, correspondence, news will play its part. Watch out for Jupiter’s optimistic ways and beliefs, “that it will all be alright”, as it may all be too good to be true and be overly exaggerated. You need to get the full story or picture before rushing in with a big Yes!
Uranus rules Aquarius, it brings in the zing, it’s in an easy aspect so not too much of zing or unexpected should happen, Jupiter’s influence is the one to watch out for, don’t sign up for too much, go with what you can handle.
New Moon’s are the new path ahead, being in Aquarius, it’s trying the new way, be open to change, change it up a little, be innovative. Aquarius/Uranus likes to do it their own way, not to happy playing by the rules, which means it may not be a smooth ride.
Mars and Neptune are lurking in the background building up on the 17th, action is faced with some uncertainty, confusion, delusion, denial even. It’s often the little undercurrents that mess you up.
Venus and Saturn are also lurking in the background building up a few hours after eclipse, get grounded into your heart or what you know to be true. Just in case it’s a bit rocky. Steady, slow is the best way.
Prepare for the new (might still be a bit of old in the new) don’t rush in, feel your way first. A few more bits need to come in.

SUN enters AQUARIUS uP in the air we go.
Leaving behind Capricorn rules and stable earthy energy. Sun lightens up in Aquarius, a freshness enters your mind and heart. It may feel a little unsteady and unknown, but that may be actually what you need.
Think about the future path/plan.
There is always a little bit of a weird kink in Aquarius ways, if you find yourself acting out of character or thinking out of the box, feeling like a rebel this could be why, you have found or want some freedom, to be different or just being yourself? Either way, go for it and express yourself, let your individuality shine out.
Reconnect with your true essence, connect with the world, be original, listen to your own mind, dance to your own tune, with the Sun in Aquarius, this is the only way to go.
VENUS enters AQUARIUS, you want lighter, new, you want to find yourself again, has it got lost, buried under the burdens you’ve been carrying around. Pop your head up and get some fresh new air, to inspire, free yourself up, become a little rebel, reinvent yourself, find new ways to approach areas of love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem issues.
You may even want a little crazy, weird and wonderful, get that “out there” outfit, “think outside the box” you gotta add that unique touch which is only yours to all that you do when she’s in Aquarius.
This weeks card is the Queen of Swords – Air – Libra.
This Queen uses head over heart. She is very clear, honest and open in here approach. She is more of a tougher Queen, as she has been through many challenges. She is very good at helping you get clear and certain.
Her great talent is using her mind, working with information and being discerning to have an outcome that is fair and balanced for all.
This may be you or others that are taking this intellectual approach this week when dealing with life.
I do feel this Queen from the Mythic Tarot does take in the matters concerning the heart and she does work with head and heart, but may come across as very dry, detached.
“My only duty in life is to remain true to myself and my inner truth”from Tarot – Mirror of the Soul by Gerd B, Ziegler.
Deck used the Mythic Tarot.
Venus enters Libra on the 14th, she likes it here, works well.
Venus/Libra is about you and the other, relationships and partnerships. Being more social, co-operating, wanting peace, harmony, fairness and balance, beauty and attraction(what you want) are also involved.
The other side of this is projection, losing yourself in the other and what they want.
Not an easy time will be had though, she comes up against, Uranus and Pluto. Big shifts may happen, truth will be told, you’ll get underneath it all, some cracks may show, to transform, to change.
Is the exchange/interaction, in balance or out of balance?
Is everybody happy!
Here are some dates to watch out for, the more challenging aspects.
Oct 28th – Venus square Pluto
Nov 5th – Venus opposite Uranus
Nov 7th – Venus enters Scorpio
Mercury/Sun square to Pluto, as you all know square are intense aspects
in astrology. So….it may have an intense vibe to the days.
Mercury and Pluto may be somewhat of a mindf**k, you may not be able to let go of something running around in your head. You can have a very probing mind, as you want to go deep. You may want something sorted, the truth. Great for detective work, doing any psychological analyzing. Words may come out of your mouth and once out they may change or transform a situation.
Sun meets up with Pluto too, ego or identity may go through some kind of transformation here. Sun shines the light on some deeper issue/conflict that’s lurking under the surface.
Anything Pluto is always about breaking something down, to be built up again, the healing power of transformation. Usually through some intensity.
Watch the Pluto part which brings in the power plays, control issues or some kind of struggle.
Moon will be in Gemini during this phase, your mind will be quick, curious and over active.
VENUS opposite Neptune, love, money and beauty, gets touched by Neptune’s alluring ways, its looks and feels lovely, it shines and sparkles in your eyes. But…. does it really?
Illusion, delusion, deception can float with this one.
Use this time creatively, tap into the magic of spirit, music, perhaps dream a little while.
Mercury enters Libra, you will want to be thinking, talking about Love, being more social and interacting with others. Love and relationships are on your mind. It’s easier to work things out, talk it out. You can get the other point of view. Collaborate, cooperate. Sun and Mercury both in cardinal air.
Moon in Capricorn helps to keep it real, grounded and to take it serious.
Jupiter Opposite Uranus, these two have been playing it out since 26th Dec 2016. They bump into each other for one last time on 28th, move on and over 2 Oct, 2017.
What have they been trying to do. Bring in change, to expand you and your life. In new ways, with new people, to get you out of the old, the routine.
It may have been a lot of surprises, shock or disruption along the way, that’s how Uranus rolls, and Jupiter brings, luck, joy was giving a helping hand, a big push, wanting you to grow and expand. If you resisted it may have been more of the shock part, if you wanted to grow, you let go, and went with the flow.
Many parts of you have changed, your beliefs, ideals, attitudes, life in general, how you look and see yourself, particularly in relationship, partnerships, Jupiter has been in Libra during this time, connecting you with the right people for the next phase.
Might be more to this story, you will know after the 2nd.
The thing with Uranus, likes to stir it up, takes a risk at all cost, Libra likes to maintain some balance, so some caution is called for here particularly this week, make the smart moves, with the right people for the long haul.
It may have a very good ending for you or it may have just been one big disruptive time.
It’s been a breaking away, liberating you, to freedom.
